Lady Bulldogs Announce Schedule

From the UGA Athletics Dept.:

Sixteen games against teams that reached postseason play last spring headline the 2008-09 schedule for the Georgia Lady Bulldogs announced by head coach Andy Landers on Monday.

The Lady Bulldogs will have 11 contests versus 2008 NCAA Tournament squads and five additional outings against WNIT participants.

"This is a schedule that will challenge us from the first game through the last game," Landers said. "Hopefully, we will grow as we're challenged in the early portion of the non-conference schedule to the point where we can be successful as we finish non-conference games because those last few certainly get difficult. And then we jump out of the frying pan and into the fire as we start SEC play."

Georgia opens regular-season play with a noon matinee against Alabama State on Saturday, Nov. 15 at Stegeman Coliseum and wraps up the campaign at home versus the Florida Gators on Sunday, March 1 at 2:30 p.m.

Non-conference dates against teams advancing to the 2008 edition March Madness include East Tennessee State in Athens on Dec. 1, at Georgia Tech on Dec. 5, at Rutgers on Dec. 8 in a nationally televised showdown as part of the Jimmy V Classic, versus Xavier in Athens on Dec. 30 and at Virginia on Jan. 2. The Lady Bulldogs will play a combined six games against Southeastern Conference teams in the most recent NCAA bracket, facing Vanderbilt and Auburn on a home-and-home basis, traveling to Tennessee on Feb. 5 and hosting LSU on Feb. 19.

Additional highlights of the non-conference slate include a Thanksgiving trip to Las Vegas for UNLV's Lady Rebel Round-up and a Dec. 22 matchup with Clemson in the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, where Georgia will host first- and second-round games of the 2009 NCAA Tournament on March 21 and 23.
